Sounds like electric heating element issue to me. Your gas dryer doesn't have electric heating elements which might explain your problem

Identification of Dryer Problems

Signs that an electric dryer may need some repairs include the dryer not heating, clothing not drying fast enough, overheating of the dryer, the door not locking shut and the dryer not starting at all. Any of these are signs of an underlying problem that can usually be solved without the help of a repairman.
Effects of Dryer Issues

If an electric dryer doesn't heat properly, it prevents the clothing from becoming dry in most cases. Restricted venting can cause clothing not to dry fast enough, as the dryer will cycle the heating. Overheating dryers can ruin clothing or cause burns. If the door on a dryer wont close, it is impossible to get any laundry dried. A dryer not running at all can be very frustrating and lead to owners needing to use a laundromat.
Considerations for Solving Common Problems.If the dryer wont heat up, owners should check the circuit breaker to see if it's down. The voltmeter at the wall plug should read 240 volts. Checking the power cord can show owners if the wires are burned where they meet the dryer.Clothing not drying fast enough and overheating are signs of restricted venting. Removing the vent hose from the dryer can help owners decide if this is the cause of clothing not drying. If the hose is removed and the dryer runs normally, the vent should be cleaned.White plastic or thin foil ducts can also lead to overheating. Only metal ducts should be used with dryers. Kinks in the vent hose can also lead to heating issues. Overheating can also be caused by a shorted heater coil, a bad operating thermostat or worn drum seals.If the door on an electric dryer will not close, it is usually a problem with the door catch. This can be solved easily by purchasing a replacement door catch for the dryer.
When a dryer wont run, it could be a number of issues. The circuit breaker may be down or the wires at the plug may be burned. It may be an issue with the door switch. The door switch should click when closed. The thermal fuse should be checked for any issues.
Preventing Dryer Problems
The electric heating element, thermostats, fuses and thermal cut-off should be checked regularly for continuity. Dryer vents should not exceed 18 feet without a helper blower in the duct. Vents that are run vertically need to be cleaned out once a year. A meter can be purchased and used to diagnose problems with your electric dryer.
Warnings and Tips.Inexperienced people should never try to fix electrical problems at home. A professional should always be used if dryer owners suspect a more serious problem. Dryer owners can purchase kits to make cleaning dryer vents easier.

You could not have enough voltage running to the dryer, so check the plug in and your breaker. Your heating element may also be shot and if this is the case, recycle the dryer and get a new dryer.

Whirlpool dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes.


Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Timer only works on Timed Dry Setting


Check your heating element. If one coil of the heating element is burnt out the dryer will heat on the remaining coil, but the timer will not advance in automatic dry.
